Lawyers argue over blame in Giants fan beating

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The lawyer for the San Francisco Giants fan badly beaten at Dodger Stadium has told a jury that the Los Angeles team failed its responsibility to keep fans safe.

Attorney Tom Girardi made the assertion Thursday in closing arguments of the trial of a negligence lawsuit filed against the team and former owner Frank McCourt.

The 45-year-old Stow suffered severe brain damage in the attack by two Dodgers fans in the stadium parking lot after the 2011 Opening Day game between the rival California teams.

The lawsuit is seeking millions of dollars in damages to cover Stow's lifetime medical care and lost earnings.

The case is expected to be submitted to jurors Thursday afternoon following closing arguments by the defense.
